Star Wars: The Force Awakens character posters feature Han, Leia and more!

11.04.2015

J.J. Abrams may have said that we wouldn't see any more trailers for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, but he said nothing about pictures and posters! It looks like the main characters are getting their own character posters, as we know have one-sheets featuring Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren, Leia, and the expert smuggler himself, Han Solo! Take a look!

As promised! Sneaky gift! The official FINN poster for Star Wars!

Daisy Ridley on her character poster:

It is my very great honour to reveal this INSANELY EXCITING poster for The Force Awakens!!!! IT'S REY!!! Looking all freckly from the Jakku sun and as if there's an adventure to be had!!! AHHHH!

I'm really enjoying the thematic continuity carried over in each poster. Given that these characters have been the focus in the teasers/trailer, they will no doubt serve as the most pivotal roles in THE FORCE AWAKENS. With that said, anyone want to call out the odds of a getting a Luke Skywalker character poster?

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens on December 18, 2015.

Kinda makes me want to see Harrison Ford playing the 'grizzled old coot' in a western - never saw Cowboys and Aliens but I can see him being great in a grumpy old bastard role.

The Fan Theories

I'm liking the idea of these fan theories about Kylo being the offspring of our favorite characters or Luke being Kylo, but it also brings up a concern. Do you think that they're trying to pull off a new generation "I am your father"? Because of the iconic twist of Empire Strikes Back, we've gotten more sophisticated to having one put over on us. JJ tried to have that impact with Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness and it backfired. IMHO, it lessens the impact considerably when it feels like they

Not a chance. Already confirmed from several sources that kylo is played by Adam Driver and leaked photos confirm Luke is still a Jedi I'm typical Obi Wan outfit. Google it and see, why would Mark Hamill grow a beard and spend the film under a mask?? Ha ill has also confirmed on his Twitter he is not Ren and wouldn't face fan backlash for denying something like that - he's too much spot a true Star Wars fan
Also footage of Kylo in trailers suggests a much slimmer build than Hamill

This adds further proof that Luke is not a big part of this film until right at the very end as far as I can say I think this film is about introducing new characters and will complete the Han Solo arc as many people are pointing out 'would Ford really sign on for 3 movies'. I think this film will feature heavily on 'finding Luke' and he will come more into the story in episode 8. Personally I think Luke will have his Obi Wan moment in episode 8 with episode 9 climaxing with another Sith/Jedi

These are my 3 predictions for episode 7
* rey and Kylo ren are Han and Leia's kids
* Han will die
* supreme leader snoke is a Sith Lord

Bonus prediction and awesome if it happens
* Finn is Landos son, kidnapped from cloud city after Lando tried to fuck Vader over

So you want to see The Force Awakens?

"Are you kidding? I'd give my right eye!"

(*Sheepishly leaves to take the posters home to cross the t's and dot the lower-case j's.*)

WAIT A MINUTE...

Wasn't Drew Strewzan supposed to do the posters for the film ?
The first teaser poster was CLEARLY part of a bigger one...
What THE FUCK happened, this time ?!

I thought so too but apparently he was only brought in to do the poster for the Comiccon (which wasn't just part of bigger one). I am so disappointed... Not that what they've done so far is ugly per se, but when you were expecting Drew to return you can't help but think at how infinitely better it could have been. A bit as if they hadn't brought John Williams back... Drew's such an important ingredient to any SW film.

Very, very cool

I like the concept, and what it says about each character. Han still has his old blaster, Leia's put down a weapon in order to become an administrator, Kylo's light saber looks like it'll explode at any second, and Finn gets Anakin's old saber. I'm sure the fight between Finn and Kylo is about who gets that prize artifact.

I'm really intrigued by Rey's weapon. We haven't seen it in action yet, but it's such an integral part of her image. I really want to see what it can do. She

He smacked his face into the Falcon. It does look odd though.

Not high on the posters

Everything about the promos have been amazing except these posters
I love the traditional star wars look
this seems like cheesy character posters and having one eye block by something is super lame

more confirmation...

notice how anakin's lightsaber is symmetrical and tightly lit...while kylo's saber is unsettling and explosive...this is because those are the only two lightsabers in existence (aside from luke's green saber, with him) and thus why kylo is trying so hard to become vader...he makes his own red saber though it isn't constructed masterfully because its a lost art...and thats why kylo is after anakins saber.

You know at first I was really not stoked for seeing the old characters well...old. However with everything I've seen I'm now really looking forward to seeing how these characters have grown and changed over the years. I loved the bit in the trailer with Han on the Falcon. It was Han but not all at the same time. This was a Han that has grown and seen some shit and mellowed in ways. More soulful. I'm really stoked to see these characters get a send off and an ending as I believe this

Would have loved Leia to have learned to wield a light saber during the time skip.

I was hoping the same thing. I wonder if it will be explained why she never pursued it. Maybe Luke's absence?

One theory floating around about the Force in the new trilogy, which I tend to believe, is that after Vader and Palpatine were killed, Luke retreated and became a hermit. Allowing the Force to end with hiimself.

So perhaps Leia decided to focus her efforts on rebuilding the Republic instead of learning to use the Force. Knowing what happened last time the Republic placed their faith in the Jedi, bad things went down. Perhaps she's with the people in that the New Republic will not need

Agreed. I think Leia stepped into Mon Mothma's shoes as head of the New Republic so any Jedi training went by the wayside because of her duties. It might have even driven a wedge (no pun intended) between her and Han; he may have had a hard time being First Husband. That might explain why Ren (who I believe is Han and Leia's daughter) is on Jakku.

Also, I suspect Kylo Ren is Han & Leia's son, which explains his Force affinity, and his obsession with finishing what Darth Vader (his
